I am delighted to be on the blog tour for “The Big Event” by Anne John-Ligali. My thanks go to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot. This book is available as an eBook. Published by Books and Authors UK.
You are cordially invited to the party of the season where you’ll meet Constance and her friends in action.
Constance Jeffries is excited when she gets the chance to meet up with virtual friends at a get-together in a London hotel. She’s been tweeting and messaging her lovely friends for years and feels they must be just as excited to finally meet her in person too. Or so she hopes.
A short story about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.
A gorgeous venue, a room full of friends, what could possibly go wrong?
This was a really thought provoking book. I found the situation that Constance found herself in, to be quite believable. A lot of people have virtual friends that they virtually meet up with on an almost daily basis. Using this as the basis for the story, Anne has set out to bring these virtual friends together at The Big Event, a face to face meet up.
A great idea that shows what could happen as social media is more and more dominant in our every day lives. But there is such a lovely ending to this story.
A quick and very compelling read. A dip into how social media can over take lives, if we allow it to. I am definitely looking forward to reading more by this author.
Happy Publication Day Anne xxx
